Miscellaneous preferences

The following preferences can be changed on the Miscellaneouspreferences page:

  • Exit CityEngine after [minutes]CityEngine features an automatic exit functionality. CityEngine can automatically exit after a given number of minutes of inactivity. Before exiting, all open files will be saved. Type 0 minutes to disable automatic exit. Automatic exit can be useful for installations in which you usually do not close applications and thus do not return licenses held by these applications to the license server. Closing the application returns the licenses held to the license server and allows other users to start the application.
  • Double-click behavior—This can be set to None, Inspect Model, or Frame Model.
  • Enable immediate mode—In immediate mode, procedural models are generated automatically if the underlying initial shape or its attributes change.
